"stop the future Pet Brick pages"

OMG! Serously!

00:46, April 13, 2011 (UTC)

Indeed. After the original Pet Brick page was deleted, people didn't seem to understand that a Pet Brick page was unnecessary. So, three deleted Pet Brick pages later, I took it upon myself to build a dam and stop the flood. All the info fits perfectly well on the Pets article, and "Pet Brick" should be nothing more than a redirect. --PeabodySam 01:28, April 13, 2011 (UTC)

My wiki!

Please join and request adminship!!

I'll consider it. The only thing that would probably stop me from actually doing so would be my increasingly-lacking free time (as well as my, *ahem*, procrastination issues), but I'll definitely see what I can do there. --PeabodySam 15:23, May 15, 2011 (UTC)

Re: Sandboxes

Anyone on the wiki can use the sandbox here. Therefore, he does not need to make his own ;) -- stercus accidit -- cjc 18:28, May 29, 2011 (UTC)

I'm not saying he should have edited the template, I'm saying that the idea that everyone needs there own sandbox is one that is mis-placed. Also, a sandbox is not just for pages you are creating for the mainspace, but for any thing you want to try. -- stercus accidit -- cjc 19:05, May 29, 2011 (UTC)

Alpha Team music

Check your YouTube messages - or, alternately, we could talk here. I've got the Alpha Team music converted (yay GoldWave), so if you like I could send the soundtrack to you, if you want you could upload them to YouTube. Just remember that if you do upload them, Legomoe needs a bit of credit for programming the PAC tools. Ya want the link? Jamesster.LEGO 17:46, June 20, 2011 (UTC)

Oh, one more thing, if you do upload them, don't use WMM to make the videos as it sometimes cuts down the sound quality by quite a bit. I recommend the free version of VideoPad . Jamesster.LEGO 17:48, June 20, 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, there's a free version of VideoPad (click the "Get It Now" button in the link above), and it's less then 10 MB. I'll PM the download link for the actual music to ya. Jamesster.LEGO 17:56, June 20, 2011 (UTC)

BTW, VideoPad is what I use to make pretty much all my YT videos. I only use WMM once in a while. Jamesster.LEGO 17:58, June 20, 2011 (UTC)

Link sent. Jamesster.LEGO 18:01, June 20, 2011 (UTC)

Not sure what's causing the hissy-ish static, I'll try to figure it out. Legomoe provided the extractor, but I did the extraction and conversion - all the game's audio is lumped together into one pac file, so I missed some of the music tracks as the music and sound effects are in the same spot. I'll try to find the missing ones, fix the static, and re-upload. Jamesster.LEGO 18:38, June 20, 2011 (UTC)

Got the missing tracks, but I can't figure out what's causing the hissing... Does it sound like that in-game? Jamesster.LEGO 20:07, June 20, 2011 (UTC)

Just checked the in-game audio, no hissing sound at all. Hmph. Well, I'll try to figure something out... If you want, I could send you the unconverted audio itself, in case you have any ideas on how to fix it. Anyways, I'll try using Audacity to convert it instead of GoldWave. Maybe that will nerf the static... Jamesster.LEGO 00:08, June 22, 2011 (UTC)

Have you ever seen anyone with an over-cheery smile and those exact eyes and eye-brows? And that look straight into space that makes him look very strange? :P I think not.

IXS walkthrough

Thought you might like to see this, Legoking831 uploaded a walkthrough for Island Xtreme Stunts. It's not 100% so there's some things skipped over, but most of the game is shown.

Jamesster.LEGO 21:54, June 30, 2011 (UTC)

Here's a quick run-down on the pros and cons of IXS:

Good stuff:

  • Long load times have been fixed.
  • The framerate is no longer bipolar like it was in LI2. Graphics have had a slight improvement, with better shadows and grass that pops up out of the surface of the ground. The art style is also a a bit less cluttered.
  • Music is no longer DirectMusic, but stored as .ogg files. As a result, the music has better sound quality.
  • Said music is catchy as heck. :P
  • LEGO Radio is back, which Pepper listens to through the Holomaniac when exploring the island. The music played is chosen at random and once one song is done another is picked, though you can choose a specific style of music in the options menu if needed.
  • A couple old characters like Enter, Return, and Studz Linken are back.
  • The new characters - like Brian Shrimp, Shugu, and Gnarly Bones - are fairly unique and interesting.
  • The writing isn't nearly as good as it was in LEGO Island 1, but it's still somewhat amusing at times ("Is it my imagination, or do trees change shape around here?").
  • There's a couple of funny references to the other games, such as the pterodactyl from LI2 flying around Space Mountain.
  • Overall, the island feels more alive - NPCs don't just wander along random paths all the time. For instance, Timmy, Jimmy, and Jenny sometimes leave their normal positions at the beach and dance at the radio station, Snap Lockitt swims around, drives boats, and does yoga or something (and if you stand still next to him Pepper does it as well), there are stray dogs and cats that run around, birds that perch on ledges and fly away when Pepper nears them, Enter and Return drive the ambulance around sometimes, Luara drives her motorcycle every once in a while, and other minor touches that just make the environment feel more interesting and interactive.
  • Pepper no longer takes three hours to pull out and put away his skateboard, and it also moves a bit faster. Skateboard tricks have fixed (they were kinda-sorta present in LI2, but were extremely slow and didn't do anything), and there are also things like rails and half-pipes built into the buildings, which Pepper can do tricks on as well. There's also two skate parks on opposite ends of the island, which along with half-pipes and rails, have other skateboarders who challenge Pepper to races.
  • Speaking of challenges, there's 17 side quests that Pepper recieves from NPCs around the island, which are pretty fun. The game was originally intended to have over 30, but half of them were cut out. Dang it Silicon Dreams...
  • 400 Red Bricks and 21 Gold Bricks to find, plus 37 Collectible Cards.
  • The game doesn't force you into following a certain path like LI2 - it's possible to skip a couple minigames entirely. It's more along the lines of LI1, where they provide a bunch of activities right off the bat, but more are unlocked later and you've always got multiple things to do. In general, it feels more open-world-ish.
  • The camera still has a few issues when you're trying to do platforming, but overall it's an improvement over LI2, as it doesn't go through walls all the time and can orbit around freely when Pepper is in a vehicle or swimming.
  • The controls/physics for Pepper have been completely reworked. He no longer jerks forward with the slightest tap of a directional key, a "sneak" mode has been added for creeping up on Brickster-Bots, he can jump while in the water (and swims faster), and overall it feels more fluid and easy to use.
  • The side quests given earlier in the game tie directly into the first segment of the ending segment on Space Mountain, which seems somewhat clever. For instance, Jack O'Trades teaches Pepper how to balance on thin surfaces by putting up a course over the harbor and challenging him to cross it. A very similar but larger course is then used in the final ending segment. Another example would be the skating challenges with Gnarly Bones and Shugu, which prepare the player for the skateboarding part of the ending game.

Bad elements:

  • Voice acting is still blah. I wouldn't say it's worse then LI2, but it's not really an improvement either. Nubby's voice is especially painful. "I SUSPEKT SOMWUN HAZ TAKEN MAH WEEL!!1!"
  • Also, don't talk to Enter and Return unless you want your fond memories of them from LI1 to be wrecked by terrible voice actors.
  • While the larger and more detailed island is fun to explore, and all the key elements from the other games exist, their locations have been completely changed around - for instance, the Information Center is halfway up Space Mountain along with Bob's workshop.
  • The Pizzaria is a drive through.
  • Motorbike Mayhem is... Glitchy, to say the least.
  • The infamous corrupted save glitch on some copies of the PC version. 'Nuff said. And as I've recently found out, some copies of Soccer Mania - including my copy - are also effected by a similar save glitch. What is it with Silicon Dreams and screwy save systems?
  • While overall it's a fairly polished game (most of the time), there's still a few random crazy bugs, like Pepper sometimes getting stuck in the ground when getting out of a vehicle. It's only happened to me two or three times since I bought the game, but it seems weird that they didn't notice it. Pepper also tends to go temporarily go invisible when leaving a vehicle at times, though it's more amusing then harmful.
  • The camera isn't that ideal considering that a good amount of platforming is present, as it either doesn't move at all when you need it to or it moves in the wrong direction.
  • Ending is meh.
  • Where's Bill Ding? You can't get rid of Bill Ding! No! Don't tell me... YOU GOT RID OF BILL DING? BILLLLLL! D:

Overall, it's a good game. As far as gameplay goes, it's the best in the series, and it does a good job of combining gameplay elements from LI1 with LI2 in a fun way. As for the more story related elements, LI1 is still best. IXS just doesn't have the voice acting, humor, or cutscene animation the original had.

So there's my mini-review-thingy-mabober. I do recommend it as the island exploration is really fun, but it's not a totally perfect game either.

In other news, if LEGO City Stories doesn't include any LEGO Island references, I will personally fly to the UK and chuck a pizza at the CEO of Travelers Tales. Jamesster.LEGO 00:48, July 1, 2011 (UTC)

It's late, I'm tired, I should be in bed, and I have to get up at 4:00 AM. Any sane person would be sleeping right now. But I'm not sane, so I figured I'd post another message. :P You said that IXS had worse voice acting because they changed the voices around for a couple of characters. Yet may I point out the drastic changes LI2 did to Pepper, Bill Ding, Red Greenbase, or Maggie Post? LI2 changed just as many voices as IXS did (if not more), and it changed them much more drastically (I don't know if that's propper grammar or spelling but screw it I'm tired). So yeah, kind of a moot point there. BTW, I got a video of all the collectible cards (they're animated), I'll upload it later, put it on unlisted, and send ya the link. But anyways, Brick Fiesta is tomorrow and we've gotta drive a few hours to get there for the opening tomorrow morning, so... Yeah, that's it then. If Black Six is there I'll nag him about the BZP forums. :P

Island Xtreme Stunts - All character cards06:09

Island Xtreme Stunts - All character cards

All the character cards.

Anyways, IXS is a lot like LI2 in many ways, and yes, it is shorter, but the biggest difference is that LI2 is unpolished and linear, while IXS is polished and open. IXS doesn't last as long as LI2, but the stuff that's there is much more fun then what LI2 has. I don't know about you, but I'd rather play a fun game that's short but has a lot of replay value over a long game that's boring and has nothing to do once you reach the end. There's a ton of little problems I didn't even notice in LI2 until I played IXS and noticed how it corrected them. Can't stand LI2 anymore. :P Jamesster.LEGO 00:58, July 6, 2011 (UTC)


The reason the Space Ranger pic was iffy was because someone took the original pic in JPEG. I can also easily fix the Shinobi pic. I know the ED-902 pic was removed, because it was clearly bad editing, no offense to Patch. I know Mythrun doesn't like photoshopped pics, but I've got good reasoning for this. I find it generally important to take a step back and remember what the wiki is for. These are average players in LEGO Universe, just coming to browse, or look for info. The pics I edited are OBVIOUSLY not leading them falsely about the appearance of the kits, so why have them removed? No, they're not official, but they're more professional-looking than the original pics to the average viewer. Why not have them? I think this is a topic for the forums...

ᵯӕᵴϯᵲⱷƷƼ >> ♪♫♪♫♪♫♪♫

Shinobi and Space Ranger pics have been slightly updated, please tell me how they look!

ᵯӕᵴϯᵲⱷƷƼ >> ♪♫♪♫♪♫♪♫

Sherman, they SHOULD be removed because:

1) Edited pics aren't allowed!

2) (This is targeted at Shinobi) We don't know what the Shinobi will look like, whether or not the player's face turns white or not, nor have we actually SEEN anyone wearing the gear other than that NPC. That's why I keep removing it.

[[User talk:ProfArchibaldHale]] 04:26, July 5, 2011 (UTC)

I personally say that we avoid edited pictures of any sort when possible, though something as simple as cropping or removing a distracting background should be fine. But I do agree the Shinobi's face should be left white. Jamesster.LEGO 04:29, July 5, 2011 (UTC)

I still think that the whiteness is the texture of the NPC, as Rutger Hemoglobin, not related to the gear. Even though there is no way to be sure of this, there is no way to be sure that the whiteness is from the gear, either. It's 50/50. Should we set up a forum and have the community vote? That seems to appeal to me...

ᵯӕᵴϯᵲⱷƷƼ >> ♪♫♪♫♪♫♪♫

Look at Rutger's hands, then that NPC's. Notice the difference? It's most likely caused by the gear.

[[User talk:ProfArchibaldHale]] 05:34, July 5, 2011 (UTC)

The Face is a Texture Glitch. The Shinobi's Face was mixed with the textures of Rutger accidentally. Absolutely no pictures of shinobi show him with a white face. If you don't believe me we'll judge that when Shinobi comes out. -- Jazzermb (Not Logged In)

Congrats on winning the Best Faction Screenshot contest! :D My guess for the screenshot they liked was the one with all the Buccaneers on the tiny boat. I mean, that's just too funny to pass up. xD Though, one thing to be aware of about the contests, the prizes seem to take practically FOREVER to ship out - I was notified of winning the Racecar screenshot contest back in May and didn't get the prizes until a few days ago. :| Not that I was exactly begging for them to arrive though, I'm not crazy about Ninjago. :P Jamesster.LEGO 02:35, July 7, 2011 (UTC)

Rockets TOC


Wouldn't adding a TOC on Rockets help others see the content on the page instead of going through all of it?  Grul0ck - Talk Pg -P4 20:31, August 8, 2011 (UTC)

Rockets TOC

I agree with the length of the TOC, which can be very long, but it is the reason why there's a "[Hide]" option at the very top of it, that is, if the TOC wasn't completely exposed (sometimes it gives the "[Show]" option instead).

 Grul0ck - Talk Pg -P4 20:57, August 8, 2011 (UTC)


This is going to take me a while to update. You're going to have quite a few more to update when I'm done.

And about the base camp, every dialogue in-game refers to it as base camp, in addition to the achievement, where it's even referred to as Sentinel Faction Base Camp.

As for the Wally Radish screen, we've already got a screen of him in-game up there, but it's low quality. I don't want to remove it because it's the only in-game pic we have of him, but if we could get it in better quality that would be great. jamesster 22:01, 9/6/2011


Why did you add the BoNS bosses to the Return to the Venture Explorer category? I'm confused... Kryiptuun 21:31, September 19, 2011 (UTC)


I have seen that you are interested to find LU soundtracks. There is a link on the web where you can download over 500 MB LU (beta) soundtracks. However, I need to keep the link secret as LEGO doesn't accept this. Whenever you and me are on the chat, I'm happy to share the link with you in a private chat.   Sim533  

LEGO Island disc

So, that odd LEGO Island disc on eBay - do you want to purchase it? If you want it, you had better do it quick, it's ending tomorrow (by the time you read this, today - the 31st). If you don't want it, I plan to buy it, but I don't want to buy it if you want it. I'm mainly interested in it to see if there's any differences from the original game (according to the small print on the disc, this one is from 2001, not 1997). So, in short, one of us needs to get it, if you want it, by all means get it, but if you don't want it I'll be getting it. But the overall goal on my end is to see if it's different from the main game - if you want to get it and play it through and check for differences, totally fine by me. Just as long as somebody can get it and note any differences found. jamesster 04:04, 10/31/2011

Derp, I misread it. It's gonna be there for another 20 days, it's just on sale for the next day or so. So no rush. jamesster 04:07, 10/31/2011

Ninja Picture

Pictures like this lose quality when you upload them in JPEG. If you've got the same pic in HQ, it would turn out better if uploaded in PNG.

Patch P2 P4 P3 02:42, 11/21/2011

No, it wouldn't, pics lose quality when saved as .jpg, not when uploading. jamesster 02:43, 11/21/2011

They lose quality both when saved and uploaded. I noticed they tend to lose some when uploading pictures of Peppermint Lane. If they're uploaded in PNG, they don't lose any during the upload process. Doesn't help if the photo's already in bad shape, though.

Patch P2 P4 P3 02:47, 11/21/2011

Alright then, don't worry 'bout what I said. Sorry for wasting time on the matter--just thought I'd point it out at the time, perhaps I'm too impulsive.

LR2 texture swap

Lego racers 2 2011-11-27 22-17-01-27
Well, the file swap worked - I switched Johnny Thunder and Baron Rosso's torso textures, and this was the result. If this doesn't confirm that the red suited guy is Baron Rosso, I don't know what does. I'll try the swap on Frankie Solido and Scooter and see what happens there, but my guess is that Frankie Solido will end up being the guy in the tux, and Scooter will end up being the Scooter from Arctic. jamesster 04:21, 11/28/2011

Why was Rio on your talk page?

I think because he saw the LR2 picture in the sidebar, clicked it, and saw it went above. That's when I walked in. I'm not sure if this is the case, but it most likely is.

LEGO Battles music

Didn't you have the LEGO Battles soundtrack uploaded to YouTube at one point, and were asked to remove it for copyright reasons? How did you record it? Line in from your DS, emulator, or what? I love the background music for astros when you're not in combat, but I have no easy way of listening to it, as there's no recordings out there, and all the emulators I've tried are either laggy, have sound static, or both. I don't always have access to a real DS either. Any tips?

On a totally unrelated note, tonight I realized that I could completely remove ambient light in Unity for absolutely complete dark levels, except for other lights I place in the scene manually. I intend to fully exploit this in one level... Should be fun. Well, for me, anyways. >:D jamesster 05:57, 12/5/2011

There is a user named WikiaStaffMember that says he is not on his usual account, which he says is a Wikia staff account. He has not been formatting things correctly, and has not been using features correctly. That is why I think he is inpersonating a Staff Member, and is not one. Also, whe he went on chat, he did not have a blue "w" next to his name, and refuses to tell which staff member he is. With that info, I think he is impersonating staff, and is not staff. Do what you think needs to be done. MassiveSodaDucktalkcontribs

Well, it's been confirmed that WikiaStaffMember is not staff of Wikia, by a member of Wikia's Staff over at CC. I think you should block him for impersonating WIkia Staff.

A Note About the Pods

SamuraiMaster (and I think some other officials, I can't really remember) have referred to the Pods by their factions. For example, SamuraiMaster said that I had "one of the Assembly Pods." I am not sure if that is confirmation enough that each of the Pod Pilots are officially members of the factions, if the symbols on their uniforms were not enough.

MassiveSodaDucktalkcontribs Huh? What in the world are you talking about, I was just trying to inform PeabodySam about some pod info. I can't tell what you're trying to say to me. Kryiptuun 03:48, January 7, 2012 (UTC)

LOL, do whatever you want. It's really un-smart to "do something" to someone who is HELPING THE WIKI IN EVERY WAY. MassiveSodaDucktalkcontribs

Oh, now I get what you're saying. You REALLY need to make a separate section on the talk page for this. Anyway, no, it really doesn't benefit the wiki by having an entire page for an unused character model that is exactly the same as another but has the word "named" in front of it. It would be best left in a trivia section. If it actually did appear as a finalized enemy, then it would be perfect for a page. Kryiptuun 03:53, January 7, 2012 (UTC)

Just noticed this...

I was looking at a blog that had some Classic Castle info, and noticed some familiar characters in this image ... Which I find somewhat confusing, because the first story arc for Captain Indigo featured the 1984 wave of Castle sets (Crusaders and Black Falcons), not the earlier 1978 sets. Yet this image shows them in that era, plain and simple. Huh. jamesster 19:24, 1/20/2012

Well this explains a few things... jamesster 19:39, 1/20/2012

Heads up

You know that leaked summer 2012 theme I mentioned a while back? Well, it was officially revealed at Toy Fair, so unless you want spoilers (and I doubt you do), I'd stay clear of the Brickset news story "Toy Fair report, part 1". No pictures but the theme name is mentioned.

On another subject...

... How did I not notice this before? jamesster 17:42, 1/24/2012

Oh, another thing - I was looking at your LEGO Battles bricklist and noticed this:
"In Imperial Final, Governor Broadside buries Captain Brickbeard in the sand, much like he did to Captain Redbeard in LEGO Chess."
Um, wasn't the Imperial leader in LEGO Chess Admiral Woodhouse, not Broadside? The only time Woodhouse has been called Broadside is in LEGO Racers, which was a screw-up, much like how they call Alpha Draconis "Alpha Dragonis" and don't call the "Royal King" by his real name (which, according to Lair anyway, is Richard). Broadside commands the blue Imperials, and Woodhouse commands the red Imperials, except for Pirates 2009/LEGO Battles where Broadside commands the red Imperials and Woodhouse is nowhere to be seen. Though considering it's implied they're pretty much divisions of the same basic faction, it's not surprising. jamesster 17:52, 1/24/2012
Eh, I dunno, I'm pretty sure I saw Admiral Woodhouse in a LEGO Magazine once... I'll do more research on it. I've been doing a bit more story research on older themes like Pirates now, I do know there's a magazine out there with a list of names for characters. Lair has a pretty good collection of magazines, I'll ask him later today. The only Pirates character who's name I know for a fact is fan-made is that pirate/merchant guy, who is commonly called Steve after a joke post at the Classic Pirates forum (I actually got a "Steve" minifigure from TheMrPeanutboy for a Jack Sparrow minifigure in a trade - I'm pretty happy about it, as apparently he was only used in two sets, while Jack Sparrow is licensed and common). Somebody posted a topic asking what the character's name was, and somebody else on the forum responded with a long, drawn-out post saying his name was Steve, and then including a ton of fake detailed backstory. Pretty funny actually. jamesster 19:58, 1/24/2012
Here's where Steve came from: jamesster 20:03, 1/24/2012
I have yet to read through it entirely (though I read it a few months back) but it looks like this topic could have some good info: jamesster 20:06, 1/24/2012
... how the heck did nobody notice that before?! jamesster 20:18, 1/24/2012

Sentinel faction Samurai rank 2 book

I came back to Lego Universe to play after a 2 months of not playing with it and I notice I got an achivement for wearing all 4 pieces of the rank 1 Samurai, but did not get the rank 2 book as a reward but instead got coins as a reward soo I was wondering "where to find this book?". I went to check my faction shop and only found the rank 1 book and also check other places.........still I can't find

Yesterday I follow your advice and this kinda happened....

I re-equip my rank 1 Samurai pieces again......suddenly the game froze and log me out....I waited for a little while before logging back in and notice again no book as an reward sooo I went back to the vendor at Numbis Station and strangely found the rank 2 Samurai pieces unlock, but the book was not with them. So werid.....

Patch P2 P4 P3 12:40, January 30, 2012 (UTC)

LEGO Racers 2 again

I was looking at your LR2 sets BrickList, and thought I might add some info - Freeze and Chill get a bigger role in the GBA version of the game, at least, in the beta. The thing is, while I've played through the beta as far as possible (it always crashes midway through the ending cutscene), I haven't played entirely through the finalized game, mainly because it's quite difficult, while in the beta the AI is really glitched up and easy to beat. But in the beta, right before you challenge Rocket Racer, Freeze and Chill challenge you to a race, as sort of a double boss, on the same track you race Rocket on. It might be different in the finalized game though - I'll try to finish that up and see if anything is different. jamesster 20:22, 1/31/2012

Oh, another thing Racers related - a while back, somebody on RRU made an interesting discovery. I don't remember the details, but you know how each circuit has a different boss when mirrored? The file that determines voice clips for the AI cars in the seventh circuit has Veronica Voltage listed for the mirrored boss... Also, the checkpoints for the Knightmare-Athon shortcut (or one of them anyway) are still in the track and somebody else on RRU found a scrapped shortcut in Pirate Skull Pass. jamesster 20:30, 1/31/2012

Re: AJR7 picture

Although I agree with your reasoning behind putting the picture of Flipz on the AJR7 page, I think it's worth noting that it wasn't just seven people who ever had Pod Shirts: I never found a Pod, but because of one of the last Mythran giveaways, I and goodness knows how many others got the Pod Captain 1 Pack in the mail. It contained the Pod Captain 1 Shirt and a Pod 1 in-game model, which was on my Chantey Shanty when the game ended. I have pictures of myself wearing it, if nobody else got any.

Brick5492's Blog Post

User:Brick5492 has created a blog post and it has caused a lot of talk on the chat. People have been asking about it a lot, and both Jamesster and Mythrun have edited it. But the way Brick wrote it makes it seems like he created the program linked there, when in fact User:Aronwk created it. But people can't understand that and are saying to fix it when he can't. Plus, I don't even know if he asked Aronwk's permission to repost that. That picture isn't even real either. I've played the download linked on there, and Brick messd with the photo. If you would, could you go and delete the post and the picture with it? It would really fix some future headaches around here.

The original subject became irrelevant so I'm changing it to this before I publish the page

Not sure if I mentioned this before or not, but ATD made a game called Rollcage in 1999, and the engine for that game was used to create Rocket Racers for LEGOLAND Windsor (if you compare the stuff in the link there to some Rocket Racers gameplay you can see a lot of similarities in physics and stuff, too). Looks quite fun, and it makes me wonder why they didn't just use that engine again when they made LEGO Racers 2 and Drome Racers... Especially Drome Racers, it feels like a perfect match for that kind of gameplay. LR2 is ok but can feel sluggish and out of control until you start earning car upgrades, and Drome Racers is fine for the most part, but the road cars can sometimes spin out of control like LR2 once in a while if you get nailed with a weapon. Rollcage seems a lot smoother from what I've seen of it so far. Also, I was looking into Drome Racers a bit, and somebody somewhere made a slight slip-up, the official website called the driver for team H.O.T. "Exocet" while the calls him "Exceta". Also, Drome Racers only covers half of the areas in the Drome itself (Canyon, City, and Mountain, with three tracks each), completely ignoring Beach, High Speed, and Jungle. Either they were feeling lazy and only made half of a game, or they were planning on a sequel... I dunno. But it's kind of weird. jamesster 17:18, 2/22/2012

Got some interesting news

I think I've found a modeler/animator from Silicon Dreams - he's selling 3D models from LEGO Island 2 and Island Xtreme Stunts, he first started selling the LI2 models two years before we figured out how to extract them from the game (plus one of them is some sort of test character not in the real game), and the Island Xtreme Stunts models are high-polygon versions of the in-game ones, the same models but more detail. I might try to buy a couple and take a closer look, they're a pretty good price. jamesster 00:50, 3/6/2012

And one of them is Johnny Thunder. :P jamesster 01:32, 3/6/2012

He also re-did the classic LEGO dragon in a more realistic style, which I find pretty neat: Also, you know all the bricks Silicon Dreams made for when models re-build and stuff in LI2 and IXS? He's selling them - all 244 - for $95. Obviously I won't be buying that, but after trying to make a virtual library of LEGO elements from scratch myself I don't blame him for charging so much, it's much more time consuming then you might think... jamesster 06:09, 3/6/2012

			{"nameTxt", self:GetName().name} } )

-- Toggle off the Boss health bar on Spider Boss death

	if self:GetVar("PlayerInRange") then
		--Alack, I have died, no more health bar.

Just FYI...

I just realized that for all of the LEGO Universe beta videos you posted on Youtube, none of them used actual LU music. Which means that about a third of the songs I had on my Beta soundtrack weren't from LU. I know the videos are old, but... Maybe some clarification next time? :P

No, I didn't. Which makes me feel like a complete idiot now. :P
In my defense, the bits where he stated where the music was from were located waaay at the bottom of the description. Also, his videos showed up in my search for LU music. My mistake, I guess.
On the bright side though, Hans Zimmer is now my favorite composer.

I've compared it to your picture, and other than a bit of recoloring (or changes in LDD), I've positively idenifited them as yours. They were supposedly "created by" Darko337, who has only edited LNA and LEGO Unix Adventures, and seems to have become a "team member" on LNA.

Venture Base in the LEGO Universe intro cinematic

Concerning edits to the LU Soundtrack page:

There's no unnamed song in the LEGO Universe intro cinematic. Look at this video:

Go to 1:17, and then play Venture Base at 1:29. They're the exact same song, so the unnamed track "Imagination Nexus" doesn't exist. It's actually just Venture Base. —Preceding unsigned comment added by BlasterBuilder (talkcontribs)

A Recent Contribution from Shaedon

Hi.  Shaedon here.  I am the creator of the contribution “The Lost Dragon Pets of Ninjago Monastery.”

First, I want to thank you for you vigilance and insights through your edits of my contribution.  Though I feel an explanation is in order.

So secondly, I offer apologies for certain errors with my contribution and what I am guessing were misguidances in policies on this Wiki.  Please understand that this was my first contribution to a Wiki…ever.  So I was excited to finally post something about a game that I absolutely love.  That said, I was practically stumbling around site until I found the Talk link under my screenname and had found the editor template where I initially started the Ninjago Dragon Pets piece.  In fact, I initially wasn’t even sure where would be the best place to post my contrib at all, until I found the Talk link and was preparing to add my contribution to the Wiki in that area.  Then, after what I felt was a carefully constructed piece, I was adding my LDD file images, and I clicked something and the entire page vanished and I had to start over.  When I tried to recall the Talk link that gave me the option of selecting the template or the blank page, it was automatically reverting to the blank page, and I wanted the template format.  I could not get it to pull up the template format, so I found the link for simply adding/creating a new page to the Wiki on the main Wiki “home” page.  I finally reconstructed and published what I thought was a pretty neat page.

I didn’t even know that any of the pix had uploaded to the overall gallery even though my original piece was never published.  Therefore I didn’t even know the two images in question had been removed twice by the time I came back to the Wiki this morning.  So telling me “NOT to reupload dupe files, especially after they have been deleted,” was a bit of a shock.  That said, I get that you are monitoring certain aspects of the site to ensure such duplicates are not presented, and I fully respect that, but a few questions come to mind regarding the images in question:

1.    1.   If an image is a dupe, then why does the template editor allow it to be renamed for posting?  Why allow the template editor to even provide the option of a duplicate picture to be posted at all?  The editor recognizes when a dupe image has been selected for upload, so why not nip the option in the bud right then before it officially even uploads, without the option for renaming the image?

2.    2.   I had made a point of selecting licensing notations in the expanded section of the image uploading process to note that I had found the images on the Wiki.  My assumption there was that knowing I was using images posted previously elsewhere on the Wiki, it was a proper idea to notate that in the process of adding the images, regardless of if I had personally renamed the images.  I’m guessing now that that doesn’t cover dupes. (Ok, not so much a question as a statement here.)

3.    3.   Which leads to my final question on the subject: is there a way to somehow link to those particular previously uploaded images in order to tie into the piece I wrote?  Not a big deal if they cannot, I’m simply curious if it’s possible. (Seems this question is actually answered by seeing my moved page on my Blog page. Thanks!)

On the point of this piece being a Blog, I appreciate the insight, though I confess I’m not sure I see much difference between a Blog page and a Main page.  Perhaps a little insight on that would help.  As such, are Blog pages found as easily as the Main pages by users simply poking around the wiki, or do users have to locate/ know the user’s screenname to find their Blog entry?  I guess given the fact that I worked hard to put together a cool piece for this awesome Wiki, the only one of its kind, I don’t want my Blog to somehow be lost in the mix like the Dragon Pets of Ninjago were lost to us when the Rift closed.

Sorry for the long message regarding the above issues, but as I said, I felt an explanation was owed in light of your diligence to keep dupes from being uploaded.  After checking out the moved page to my Blog section, I have seen that you reposted the originally titled images into the loactions where I had the images initially, so I appreciate the edits there.  Again, though, why even permit the option to rename a previously loaded image???

Ever appreciative…

Hi Peabody Sam, I'm Lee. I have just created a new wiki and I found the YoutubePlayer template, that you guys have here, very interesting. I'd really like to have feature in my new wiki as well. However, I have no idea how to make it work. Do you have any idea as to what I could do?

Thank you!
